All Hallows, now a private residence. © George Weston.
Bethel Pentecostal Church (Assemblies of God) on Chapel Lane was originally a private house (1790-1872). There followed several decades as Kirkland Methodist Chapel (1872-1919), and a return to secular use from 1919 until 1964, when the current occupiers took over. Another view.

Christadelphian Church on Lowther Street. This is the rear of the building. The front is probably visible here (note cross in window) on Google Maps. The building is certainly older than their occupancy - the 1975 OS map shows it as a bakery. SD 5217 9261. © Howard Richter (2014).
Evangelical Church. © George Weston.
The former Exclusive Brethren Meeting Room on Crescent Green. It had quite a short life - built in 1967 (it superseded a former chapel in Bluecoats School Yard off Highgate) it later closed, and was sold in 1980. It has since been in commercial use, and is presently a nursery. The congregation joined with the Lancaster Meeting, on Powderhouse Lane. Another view. Both © Kevin Price (2012).
Howard Richter advises that there was an Independent Chapel on Lowther Street, mentioned as such on the 1859 OS map, and Ch. on the 1898 and 1914. By the time of the 1938 edition it was in use as offices. What may be the building is visible here on Google Maps.

Methodist Church. SD 514 932. © George Weston.
